AzPANA is a specialty nursing organization focused on providing educational and scholarship opportunities to all nurses who actively work in the perianesthesia setting or are interested in a perianesthesia career. Our educational opportunities provide current information on topics relevant to perianesthesia nursing.
Perianesthesia nursing encompasses preoperative/preprocedural care, postoperative/post-procedural care, or extended recovery in hospitals, surgery centers, pain clinics, GI clinics, or office-based practices. Our education committee is focused on providing seminars where expert speakers present new knowledge on surgical procedures, patient management, or anesthesia techniques based on needs assessments from participants. Through these educational seminars, AzPANA offers contact hours provided through the American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nursing (ASPAN). ASPAN is the organization responsible for the standards in perianesthesia nursing.
